The NBA Draft is the process through which teams select amateur U.S. college basketball players and other eligible players, including international players, according to a principle that follows the rule: ‘The worst choose the best’
The first 14 picks in the draft belonged to teams that missed the playoffs being the order determined through a lottery. The lottery determines the 3 teams that will obtain the first 3 picks on the draft. The other first-round picks and the second-round picks were assigned to teams in reverse order of their win-loss record in the previous season.
